Monday in Washington, DC, the esteemed actor Wallace Shawn participated in a rally where he vehemently denounced Israel’s response to the violent terrorist activities orchestrated by Hamas. The individual articulated his personal stance opposing the concept of vengeance, describing the current state of affairs as a concrete manifestation of this attitude.
Shawn is widely acknowledged for his eloquence as an anti-Israel activist and his prominent membership in the left-leaning anti-Zionist organization Jewish Voice for Peace. These individuals ascribe the recent violent activities of Hamas to an ideology they label “Israeli apartheid.”
On Monday, the persona renowned for their participation in The Princess Bride orationed a remark at a public demonstration. This specific demonstration was organized in collaboration between Jewish Voice for Peace and If Not Now, both of which are anti-Israeli organizations.
Shawn expressed his belief that “It’s certainly one of the most deliberate cruelties inflicted on a group of people that I can remember that my own government has supported.”
“Even in Vietnam, there was a whole elaborate explanation that people gave, and they didn’t quite admit they were just slaughtering the innocent. This is very deliberate.”
“I also don’t really believe in revenge, and that’s what this is.”
“It’s one of the most deliberate cruelties inflicted on a ppl that I can remember that my own gov’t has supported. Even in Vietnam, they didn’t quite admit they were just slaughtering the innocent”

Shawn has maintained a steadfast membership in the Jewish Voice for Peace, an organization dedicated to opposing the establishment of Israel. The recent Hamas terrorist attacks were ascribed by the organization to “Israeli apartheid and occupation—and complicity of the United States in that oppression.”
Beyond its membership, the organization comprises notable individuals including Judith Butler, Tony Kushner, the playwright of Angels in America, and Noam Chomsky.
Former President Donald Trump pledged on Monday to implement a policy that would prohibit the entry of immigrants who express support for Hamas into the United States, should he be re-elected as president. Moreover, he made a solemn commitment to allocate law enforcement personnel to rallies in support of Hamas, specifically targeting immigrants who openly support the Palestinian militant organization, in an effort to apprehend and repatriate them.
During a campaign stopover in Iowa, President Trump deliberated on the Israel-Hamas conflict, emphasizing the slaughter of at least 1,300 Israelis, which was instigated by Hamas. Following this occurrence, a conflict ensued, in which Palestinian health authorities assert that Israel was responsible for the demise of more than 2,800 Palestinians in the Gaza region.
President Trump has declared his intent to enact specific immigration policies should he be re-elected. In particular, he advocated for the exclusion of individuals who deny Israel’s right to exist from entrance into the United States, along with the revocation of visas for international students considered to possess anti-Semitic ideologies.
Additionally, he pledged to enhance restrictions on travel originating from “terror-plagued countries.” Trump also called for a rigorous process of “strong ideological screening.”
Several immigration initiatives enacted by President Trump have faced legal challenges from liberals during his tenure; therefore, it is conceivable that his most recent pledges could also be subject to comparable legal scrutiny.
President Trump declared his intention to enforce a ban on immigration from Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, and any other nation “or wherever else poses a security threat” on Monday. Additionally, President Trump recited a poem in which he compared venomous serpents to criminal aliens.
The invasion of Israel, according to Trump, has increased apprehension regarding the imminent risk of a third world war. Trump made public his conviction earlier this month.
Saturday, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, President Trump delivered a statement of caution to his supporters, which coincided with the initiation of Hamas’ military incursion into the United States.
According to Trump’s statement, “We are closer to World War III than we’ve ever been. And I’m the only one that will prevent World War III.”
Further, Trump asserts that a potential conflict of this nature would be extraordinarily lethal, citing significant advancements in armament as evidence.
“That won’t be a war with army tanks going back and forth, too,” Trump warned. “That will be a war with weaponry the likes of which this world has never seen before … I know it. I know it better than anybody.”

The previous administration was met with severe criticism from the former president regarding the leadership of President Joe Biden. He claimed that Biden’s actions, which were both domestic and international in nature, “caused this war with his stupidity” and attributed it to his lack of intelligence. Trump cited additional actions taken by the Biden administration, including voter identification legislation and lenient border regulations, as contributing factors.
Biden has been the target of ongoing allegations concerning his purported involvement in orchestrating the Hamas offensive against Israel.
Over the weekend, several Republican presidential candidates emphasized the recent unblocking of $6 billion in Iranian currency, a transaction contingent on the release of five Americans incarcerated in Iran.
The aforementioned candidates claimed that the provision of funds enabled the attack to transpire.
